MAINWARING: Abortion beats breast cancer

Attack on Komen group reveals Planned Parenthood’s real business interest

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Before the 2011 NFL season began, it was as if there already was an anti-Tim Tebow club lying in wait. There’s a reason Mr. Tebow is reviled by so many. He is the poster boy for pro-life America and thus the archenemy of Planned Parenthood, NARAL and others.

How did this come about? During the 2010 Super Bowl, while still a University of Florida quarterback, Mr. Tebow and his mom, Pam, were featured in a commercial produced by Focus on the Family. Pam Tebow ignored doctors’ recommendations to abort her fifth child after she became sick. She ended up giving birth to a future Heisman Trophy winner. His life stands as an indictment against organizations like Planned Parenthood, reminding us that each aborted child is indeed a life - a singular, remarkable life.

Why does it seem like all of Planned Parenthood’s perceived enemies are now symbols of what is great about America? Tim Tebow and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation are pure Americana.

What’s next? If baseball, hot dogs or apple pie ever get in the way of abortion on demand, the attacks will come fast.
